Jigsaw puzzle season

Recommended Posts

Well, I have tried again to get the rotating pieces. No luck. I use a laptop. It is not touch screen it is a pad. I chose the Christmas selection to try and solve my little hiccup. 

 

There are four Jigsaws that I presume need rotating as they have a little tilted jigsaw icon on the bottom right of jigsaw  pictures. I must be missing something (Hubbs reckons its a loose screw, been telling me for years). I have even tried the 'Flowers, Yellow and Red, that Stuart posted, but no Rotation Arrows came up.

 

I will keep trying, though there are plenty of  selections I can choose that don't need rotation. By the way, I agree, the times that people can complete the Jigsaws does make you wonder?

Brew, if you look at the puzzles a few have the pieces on an angle, these are the ones that can be turned.

I only did one and got fed up with that type.

 

Re the times, someone must have found a way of fiddling it, you couldn't move all the pieces into place even if you knew exactly where they went, in the times shown.

 

Like the 2 on the top left / centre

My two new Wasgij puzzles arrived yesterday. Looks like we have to stay in for a while as CV cases are increasing too quickly. They will keep me busy and keep my brain.from falling asleep.

I'm still using the Barnsley museum link that CT posted. Some great pictures on there.

Me too BK. I think it's a great site. I don't try to match the speeds, I just enjoy the jigsaws. I do them on and off all day. Hubbs reckons it keeps me out of mischief.:)

I don't personally believe those times Carni, nobody's that fast. I also sometimes change the numbers of pieces, if I like the image and there's not enough.

BK, I haven't seen the option for changing the number of pieces. Can you tell me how to do it or how to find the instructions please. Will give it a try.

If it's Jigsaw planet you mean;

 

Then select a puzzle.

Along the top of the picture where it shows the Creator there is a  PLAY AS , click and a drop down preselect size list comes up, or go to the bottom CUSTOM  and you can set your own number of pieces.

Brilliant. I have just found it. I didn't realise what the 'Play As' option was. My Heroes.:biggrin:

You can also make it a full screen Carni, by clicking on the icon in bottom right corner of Stu's image above.

We're always here to help, fair maid.
